So they brought in a backhoe yesterday and laid waste to the backyard. Ripped out the back stairs and small roof overhead. Then dug out the perimeter of the new foundation (21×8′) — which is only 5-6′ deep since it will be a crawl space and not a full basement underneath the addition.
I’m kinda encouraged that they were able to bring in a dump truck with trailer and backhoe on top without crushing the driveway. The real test will be today/tomorrow when they park the 80,000 lbs cement truck on the driveway and start pouring the foundation.
Pete’s been clear from the jump that I’m not allowed to use and/or touch power equipment. Did he talk to the guys at Star Quality Construction that did my front steps last summer? I mean I thought me & Star Quality made magic together. Not gonna kill you to leave the backhoe & keys overnight, is it Pete? When I mix Coors Light and power equipment — wonderful things happen!
